I work in the Risk, Consulting and Software division within Towers Watson's EMEA business (RCS). I am a Software Development Manager helping to make our apps cloud ready, helping to improve process and automate as much as possible. We are Azure focussed and work closely with Microsoft to benefit Towers Watson, Microsoft and all consumers of Azure products.

At Super Compute 15, one of our solutions was used to calculate the cost to insure the entire worlds population (7.3 billion life insurance policies!) - to do this we used 100,000 cores spread across 13 Azure data centres. Microsoft covered the costs of that thankfully :)
